      Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I tried Smashbox because this eye liner received very good reviews. I was using an eye liner from another company and half way through the day it would smudge and lose it's color. I wanted an eyeliner that would hold up all day and this product delivers!!! I use Midnight Blue and this really brings out my green eye color. People have actually complimented my eyes since I have been using this eye liner. It may be a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for and this eye liner is worth it.

          This is my favorite eyeliner. No sharpening needed, can apply thin or thick lines and it's still smooth and never clumps. The only downside is you can't tell if it's running low.

            I love this liner. It is super black and has a sharpener built in the cap! You can easily make a fine thin line or a thick bold cat eye. It also lasts pretty long for the price!

                  The best eyeliner I've found for everyday application. It doesn't smudge and stays on all day. I work in a hospital and am running all day long, sometimes in humid environments too. It never looks clumpy or unnatural.

                    I bought two of these, one as a gift. I should've tested the color before I bought it, because I was expecting a different color. I returned it for a different product, but I loved it otherwise.

                        Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off a sharpener in the lid refines and feeds the tip, so your pencil is Always Sharp. If you need to advance the liner hold the pencil just below the tip and pull down.

                      How "long" is the product, in terms of the eye liner inside the plastic? I got one of these in a sample and it was gone after about 10 uses that made me very sad! Trying to figure out if this sample was the full size or truly, a sample.

                        Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off (do not twist and click, or pump) a mold in the lid reshapes the tip of your liner, so your pencil is Always Sharp. You should definitely get more than 10 uses out of this product.
